Humph! A new run! That means the 'This is a trap' strip is tomorrow's offering.
Panel 1: Mrs Baird points out that the puppies are eight weeks old now. The reason she didn't call them before is that the mother was being moody and she wanted to keep things quiet for her.
Panel 2: Mike asks politely if he can pick up one of the puppies. She selects one which she describes as a bright little fellow.
Panel 3: She then points out to John that the two of them make a cute pair and calls on him to take the little guy as she'll have to find him a good home anyway.
Panel 4: John says if he does that she'll have to find him a good home too.
Summary: Tune in tomorrow as Elly goes over to keep herself fur-pet free.
